What is Amber Resin?

         Amber Resin is a natural aromatic made from fossilized tree resin that's not to be confused with sap. We only support suppliers who ethically harvest and distribute this resin with full respect to future generations of this holy and most sacred tree. It's not only used as an incense but also valued as a gemstone, made into jewelry, and used as a holistic medicine. Certain cultures prize this resin in religious context. It's an industrial staple being used in many ways. It has been used in the production of perfumes, and as a sacred and holy healing medicine throughout history. We need to make sure we grow more of it than we harvest because we don't want it an endangered species.


Just the way it looks is really cool to me. I can't believe an entire room was made out of this stuff. It just goes to show that it's a very good preservative and industrial staple. It's used as a sort of polish as well, and I woulnd't be surprised if it was the straight up active ingredient in many items used in construction. It's no wonder that cultures have embraced its fragrance as well, and for centuries. They have discovered the value of these sacred gems far before the modern world of science has stepped in to play its role in actually understanding how they work. Today phytochemist and other branches of chemistry and science have taken a closer look under the surface of these fragrant gifts.


Amber Resin Usage


      It's well known throughout history. Gaius Plinius Secundus (AD 23 – August 25, AD 79), also known as Pliny the Elder, was a Roman author, naturalist, and philosopher. Pliny states that this scent is found in Egypt and India. He also says that it possesses electrostatic properties. Electrostatics is a branch of physics that examines the phenomena and properties of stationary or slow-moving electrical charges that have no acceleration. This is a very fascinating indeed. What does it all mean? I dunno man. Clearly Amber has plenty of evidence to back its need on an industrial level even further because of these findings. That's all I'm saying!


The fragrant gem has even been used to flavor liquor. It has been popular among human beings sense the stone age. Ornaments of it have been found in Mycenaean tombs and other places across Europe as well. In ancient times of Hippocrates this aromatic was used for treating a wide variety of ailments. The ancient Chinese would even burn Amber during large festivities. You know I just had an idea. What if you made your own perfumes and Cologne? Why not use this stuff to make your own products man. You could get high proof alcohol and look into regulations and rules, and whip up some great new state of the art aromatherapy items. All I'm saying is that this is what industry is doing, and that is the basis of their business. We do need to respect the environment in all that way do, that is for sure.


The sappy resin can be burned for its smell, to cover up fowl odors, repel insects, as an ingredient in DIY mixtures for protecting your plants etc. Just do yourself a favor and make absoltue sure that you're not allergic to anything and that you don't sue me! Use caution and conduct further research and please abide by our legal disclaimer. Amber and other incense have been used by the Chinese sense 2000 BC for religious purposes. Korean Buddhist monks would use fragrant-scents for their mystical aromas and for purification rites. They believed that they were and still are "valuable tools for stimulating the life-force or "chi" in human beings". Some say scents in general can lift your mood, elevate inner awareness, and bring forth powerful shifts in perception. I will encourage you to be the judge.
